New's the fit?

I drove my horse in his new harness today (well, "new to me" harness). Took a lot of adjusting and punching a few extra holes but how does it look?

Seems decent. I would lower the shafts and lengthen the traces so that the tip us at the point of shoulder. Your breaching could be raised a bit but not much. It will also need adjusting once you get the shafts in the proper spot.

The traces are set as long as they go but I'll definitely lower the shafts. I was thinking the same thing. I'll also raise the breaching a bit. Thanks!
